50 years from now, what will the UK look like? Four respected wordsmiths write and perform monologues for us from the perspective of a post Brexit Britain in 2069. Check out the other Postcards from the Future for Wales Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Co-writers and real life couple Dreda Say Mitchell and Tony Mason, send you a Postcard From The Future - from England.
The Equality Voices Act, 2066, has been enacted making it an offence to deny most people a platform to have their voice heard. England, 2069, is the envy of the world because young, old, black, white, gay, straight, working-class, middle-class, have the right to discuss their opinions freely
It wasn’t always like this. Back in the day many groups believed they did not have a voice in shaping the type of England they lived in. They felt invisible.
In a monologue style two people share how the Equalities Voice Act has changed their lives.
DREDA SAY MITCHELL is an award-winning and best-selling author of ten novels. She was the first Black British author to receive the Crime Writers’ Associations’ John Creasey Dagger. Since 2005 Tony Mason has co-authored five novels with Dreda and pursues his own writing projects.
TONY MASON was born and grew up in Crawley New Town on one of London’s post war overspill council estates. He studied history at university and then did various jobs before working in computers for many years. He’s collaborated with Dreda Say Mitchell on her last seven books and on her various other projects. His dad calls him Dreda’s ‘hanger on’ which is both very unfair while not being entirely untrue either.’
